The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, letąs face it, the man rocks.

The final Twilight film finally fell from the top spot at the box office, but Gerard Butler wasn't the one to take Bella and Edward down.



It was Bond, James Bond, who reclaimed the throne four weeks after debuting at No. 1. Skyfall grossed an estimated $11 million, according to Box Office Mojo

Rise of the Guardians rose to second place, with $10.5 million. Breaking Dawn Part 2 grabbed $9.2 million to follow in third place. Lincoln and Life of Pi claimed the No. 4 and No. 5 spots, taking in $9.1 million and $8.3 million, respectively.



Butler's new film, Playing for Keeps, failed to score with audiences, netting just $6 million in its opening weekend to debut in sixth place. At No. 7, Wreck-It Ralph drew $4.9 million.



Rounding out the top 10: Red Dawn (No. 8, $4.2 million), Flight (No. 9, $3.1 million) and Killing Them Softly (No. 10, $2.7 million).
